Orthopedic Surgeon with Fellowship Training in Hand and Upper Extremity Microsurgery
A founding member of Illinois Bone and Joint Institute, Dr. Jeffrey L. Visotsky is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon with a subspecialty certification in hand surgery. He specializes in hand, elbow and shoulder reconstruction procedures. Dr. Visotsky performs rotator cuff repairs, shoulder instability reconstruction, primary and reverse shoulder replacement, tennis elbow surgery, and all hand procedures, including reconstruction, reimplementation and carpal tunnel surgery.
When medically appropriate, Dr. Visotsky provides advanced treatments including arthroscopy and the use of platelet-rich plasma injections to stimulate tissue healing. In many cases, Dr. Visotsky is able to treat patients successfully using non-surgical methods. His goal is to restore each patient back to the normal function in their activities of daily living and sports.
Dr. Visotsky has been part of the design teams for implants used in shoulder arthroscopy and shoulder replacements. In addition, he is conducting clinical trials evaluating platelet-derived growth factors and primary and reverse shoulder replacement techniques. He is on the medical consulting staff of the Shedd Aquarium and Brookfield Zoo.
Working and conducting clinical research studies gives me access to innovative techniques years before they’re available to the general public.
“Doc V is the best. He did surgery #10 on my arm and wrist. Had HIS plate in my arm and wrist for over 10 years. If it wasn’t for a drill getting stuck in angle iron they would still be in there. But now I have a couple of cool key chains. You’re the best Doc V. Thanks for all the help and 10 years without a surgery.”
“Dr. V was excellent and he made a stressful – scared of the pain – exam very easy and enjoyable. I would recommend him to anyone.”
“Dr. Jeffrey Visotsky was wonderful. He was patient, kind, understanding, and very thorough. I can’t thank him enough for his knowledge and fabulous personality.”
